Me llamo Esther y estoy estudiando un BA en Media Studies, que se podría traducir como Comunicación Audiovisual. Mi razón para venir a estudiar aquí fue, además de su excelente reputación en este campo (entre las 10 primeras universidades en el Reino Unido), el gran ambiente que se respira aquí, que ya se siente desde los días de puertas abiertas. Desde el primer día hay un montón de oportunidades para conocer gente: en clase, en asociaciones y clubes, en fiestas… la gente es muy agradable y notas que hay una gran preocupación por tus estudios: no te sientes solo en ningún momento.

La calidad de la enseñanza  también es algo que me atrajo a la UEA en primer lugar y que no me ha decepcionado, por ejemplo con seminarios en los que profesores geniales nos ayudan a contrastar ideas, fomentar el debate y conseguir sacar lo mejor de las clases magistrales. La biblioteca también es muy fácil de usar y verdaderamente excepcional – tiene miles de libros, algunos incluso en español, ¡lo cual me agradó mucho descubrir! En el campus es difícil aburrirse: hay muchos sitios donde puedes comer o tomar algo, puedes ir a conciertos de artistas muy populares en la sala LCR de la Universidad, puedes relajarte y soltar tensión en la piscina o el gimnasio del cercano Sportspark, o también darte un paseo alrededor del maravilloso lago que hay en el campus. Yo, por ejemplo, voy mucho a las cabinas del Centro de Música… ¡para que no se me oxiden los conocimientos de piano que me he traído de España!

La arquitectura es algo a lo que cuesta acostumbrarse, pero al final acabas aprendiendo a querer el cemento que te rodea, los zigurats, o el punto central de la universidad: el Square (la plaza), que se llena de estudiantes en cuanto sale el sol. La verdad es que al principio todo este cemento es un poco abrumador, ¡pero ahora no preferiría ningún otro sitio! Ya es como mi segunda casa.

Además, la ciudad de Norwich es preciosa. Si vives en el campus, solo se tardan unos 20 minutos en bus para llegar al centro. Aquí se encuentran todo tipo de tiendas: de cadenas de tiendas a grandes centros comerciales, pasando por las "Lanes", la zona más independiente y en ocasiones algo extravagante de la ciudad. Hay infinidad de monumentos, por ejemplo un castillo o las decenas de iglesias, que son también un buen modo de conocer un poquito más la historia de Inglaterra. .. ¡y hay gran cantidad de pubs y discotecas! Da igual si te gusta salir para relajarte o para bailar, aquí hay para todos los gustos. Norwich es también una de las ciudades más seguras de Inglaterra, lo que hace que  la mudanza a otro país resulte mucho más fácil y tranquila.

Para resumir, mi experiencia hasta el momento ha sido muy positiva y recomendaría UEA sin lugar a dudas.

My name is Esther, and I'm doing a BA in Media Studies. My reason for coming to the University of East Anglia was, apart from its excellent reputation in the field of Media and Communication Studies (Top 10 in the UK), the great atmosphere here, which you can already feel during Open Days. From the first day, there are plenty of opportunities to meet new people: in class, through societies and clubs, at socials... Everyone here is so nice and genuinely concerned about your studies that you don't feel left alone at any moment.

The quality of teaching is, as well, something that attracted me to UEA in the first place and which hasn't let me down; for example, with extremely nice and helpful seminar leaders that help us steer the discussion and get the most of our lectures. The Library is easy to use and really exceptional - it has thousands of books, even in my mother tongue, which was very pleasing to see! You'll never be bored at UEA: there's plenty of places to have a bite of food, you can attend concerts by well-known artists at the University's LCR, you can let out steam after a work-out at the Sportspark's gym, you can go for a short walk on the scenic path around the beautiful Broad... as for me, one of the things I like to do most is to go to the Music Centre's practice rooms and make sure the piano skills I brought from home don't get rusty!

The architecture is something that it might take some time to get used to, but you learn to love the abundant concrete, the very special ziggurats, or the University's central point: The Square, which is full of students soaking up the sun when the weather is nice. It did seem overwhelming at the beginning, but now I wouldn't think anywhere else is prettier! It's already my second home.

Moreover, Norwich is a truly nice city to live in. If you live on campus, it only takes about 20 minutes by bus to get into town. Here you can find a variety of shops: from regular High Street ones, to huge shopping centres, to the more quirky and independent Lanes. There are landmarks such as the Norwich Castle or the many, many churches that are also a good way to discover English history... plus there are so many pubs to relax in! Whether you like going out to relax or to dance, there's something for everyone. It's also one of the safest cities in England, so that makes moving away from home that bit easier.

To sum up, I would say that as a whole my experience at UEA has been great so far - I would recommend it without a single doubt.
